Mother Earth and her indigenous peoples are under attack!
In the illegitimate provence known as British Columbia, militarized Royal Mounted Canadian Police are forcibly removing the Wet’suwet’en People from their sovereign and unceded land to clear the path for a (Coastal GasLink) pipeline that will mean more death and destruction for all sacred life on earth.
In Washington State, our First People’s way of life is facing a new level of attack as our salmon and orca are facing extinction due to climate disater caused by toxic fossil fuels.
In the face of these destructive acts, we gather to pray for strength for the Wet’suwet’en and all those indigenous peoples standing up for our Mother Earth, and to protect & restore our Salish Sea and all that we hold sacred. We Stand with hereditary chiefs!
